How to

Starting Position

1. Begin by positioning yourself on the decline bench and set your feet firmly on the floor. 2. Place your hands on the barbell, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. 3. Unrack the barbell and hold it above your chest with your arms extended.

Proper Form

1. Inhale deeply and then lower the barbell by bending your elbows and allowing your chest to stretch. 2. Lower the barbell until it touches your chest, making sure to keep your elbows tucked in at your sides. 3. Exhale as you press the barbell back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale deeply as you lower the barbell and exhale as you press it back up. 2. Keep your breathing steady and consistent throughout the movement.


1. Ensure that the bench is set at the appropriate decline angle for your body size and strength. 2. Make sure to keep your back flat against the bench and your feet firmly on the ground throughout the exercise. 3. Maintain control of the barbell and do not allow it to drop quickly.
